Night Flying at SEFF 2010 (Awesome!)

The night flying at SEFF 2010 was awesome, by far the best I've ever seen!
Every night just after dark they came out in force, up and down the runway. Every type of aircraft in every color you can imagine, it was just beautiful!
I've seen a few pictures here and there but it'd be nice if you guys would post any pictures you took of the night flying here. I'd be really nice if any of you with night flyers would post pictures of your aircraft in the daylight and at night. I was surprised at the difference. One aircraft I saw flying one night really stood out among others, it was beautiful and very graceful in flight. The next day I made it a point to find that beautiful aircraft and talk with it's owner. I was finally pointed to a gentleman said to be the owner and when he showed me the blue foam flyer in the daylight I just about fell out. It was butt-ugly!!! Video would also be great if you have them.
I was so inspired, I bought a blue-foam flying wing and a ton of LED light strips in lots of colors while at SEFF. I'm working on it now and hope to have a SEFF worthy night flyer in a week or so. I can't wait to join you guys in the night sky!!!

Here's my 87" BME Edge 540 lit up externally.

Looks the same in the day as it does at night. You can't make out the other two on top of the display much from the angle the picture was taken, but they are a Precision Aerobatics Katana MD with 550 LED's on it on the left and an Extreme Flight 48" Yak-54 on the right.

I was really impressed at the increase of models in the air at night this year too. The LED strip lights have changed the game. Too bad the weather shut everyone down early on Friday and Saturday nights. Prior to then, it was common to see folks flying after 1AM which isn't typical from what I have seen in the past. Those guys from Ontario seemed to be on a mission both day and night, but I was glad they camped near us. Made for a great show while chilling by the camp fire.

Hey Fish, That's because they are brand new and I hope to have a few sets ready to sell at Joe Nall. I just need some brave pilots!

If they do well, then I will go into a production run of them and list them on the website. I haven't even set a price yet, have to work out the numbers and see what I have into it and what they should sell for.

I have a 100"+ Yak flying with the first prototype set at a club in SC, and they say they work great. I will try to get some giant scale pilots opinion and maybe even get some real demo testing and true feedback from some of the guys at the 3D or Electric flightline at Joe Nall.

The flight line looked more like Vegas than SEFF this year. I was amazed at the delta between night flyers from last year to this SEFF
